Bistro Garden

It’s one of the prettiest dining rooms in the city, so genuinely retro it’s breathtaking. The old-world bar is a block long, tables are separated by acres of real estate, and a lofty skylighted ceiling makes the main room feel like a patio—even at night. The food is continental: liver and onions, broiled Gulf prawns, linguine with smoked salmon, caviar, and champagne cream sauce. For dessert, the famous chocolate soufflé is divine, if not remotely lemony.
